THATCHER, AZ—In preparation for the upcoming fall semester, Eastern Arizona College’s Evaluation Unit will offer placement testing in the evenings from Monday, August 16 through Friday, August 20. Testing will be available each evening from 4 to 8 p.m. and will take place in the College’s High Tech Center. The last test will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Students should bring their EAC student ID and a photo ID to the test.

What are EAC’s placement tests? All degree-seeking students must take the placement test prior to enrolling in courses at Eastern Arizona College. Non degree-seeking must take the placement test if enrolling in courses that require Math or English placement. The placement test covers reading, writing, mathematics, spelling, and vocabulary and the results are used during the educational planning process to assist students in selecting appropriate level courses in which they will be successful. The COMPASS placement assessment can be taken at no charge for students who are enrolling at Eastern Arizona College. EAC uses the COMPASS (Computerized Adaptive Placement Assessment & Support System) test from the American College Testing for placement.

For additional information, contact EAC’s Evaluation Technician, Jerri Lukens, at (928) 428-8491.
